I’m going to take a stab at the whole social networking thing and try Twitter. I thought about taking the leap before I started blogging, but then I didn’t. I considered it again after reading this piece in the New York Times - I could use Twitter to let Matt and my friends know were I was during my crazy days (but then I remembered that I have no friends away from the office, and Matt already has four different ways to contact me if he needs something). The catalyst that finally got me to sign up was the fact that two bloggers I read regularly wrote about Twitter today (see here and here).
You can follow me at http://twitter.com/banker_girl. I’m also including the twitter feed on this blog on a test baisis (see far right nav). While I’m at it, I should try getting more active on StumbleUpon - it’s driven a lot of traffic my way and I need to learn how to return the favor.
Speaking of networking, I came across this article at Kiplinger.com. While I’m not certain that I agree with Mr. Nemko’s conclusions (60% is still a pretty powerful percentage), he mentions a couple of the job-search engines I wasn’t previously aware of.
SVB offers up 20 tips for becoming a frugal capitalist - all great ideas. I love the concept of earning more and spending less simultaneously - real wealth is made by doing both.
Here’s another post along the frugal vein that caught my eye from Not Made of Money. A nice reminder that there is a huge difference between mindful spending and being cheap.
Finally, I loved this post from Cash Money Life (honey, this is in no way a hint - you brought a tear to my eye with dinner last night). It really is true that little things mean a lot.
Have a great weekend, all!Stumble it!
